Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.

Sometimes life just doesn't seem to go our way. We get stressed, we feel like we're hitting a wall (or perhaps we just feel like hitting a wall), and things don't seem to be flowing in our direction.

But perhaps we're looking at it from the wrong angle. Maybe we are the ones who are not going life's way... We may not be seeing the open window in the middle of the wall. This open window can be used to see things from another perspective, or simply to get to the other side of our problem...

If you're feeling like you've been facing a brick wall, sometimes it's not obvious as to what needs to be done. So this week, our authors bring you various tools to work with stress, anxiety, and nightmares (whether the ones in our sleep or the ones in our daily life). The goal is to get past the impediments in our life, so we can live in the now, in harmony and divine simplicity.

Please scroll down for the featured articles in this new issue of InnerSelf, and also the recap of all the articles that were added to the website during the week.

Wishing you enjoyable insightful reading, and of course a wonder-full, joy-full, and loving week.

The Three Stages of Stress: Alarm, Resistance, Exhaustion

Written by Marianne Teitelbaum, D.C.

The Three Stages of Stress: Alarm, Resistance, Exhaustion

The adrenal glands are responsible for our “fight or flight” response to stress. When stress is prolonged and the adrenals are forced to work overtime, they can become exhausted, leading to what is commonly called adrenal fatigue or adrenal weakness.


How To Control Anxiety and Develop Inner Resources

Written by Tom Bunn

How To Control Anxiety and Develop Inner Resources

What are some of the differences between panic and anxiety? In panic, a person believes their life is threatened and that escape from the threat is impossible. With anxiety, the threat is not life-threatening. Escape is possible, but it has drawbacks: it may involve compromise or some kind of cost or loss.


Learning to Manage Triggering Emotions: Finding Space Between Trigger and Reaction

Written by Mark Coleman

Learning to Manage Triggering Emotions

We are bombarded with potential triggers all the time. It can be as simple as someone not holding a door for us or the perceived negative tone of an email. It can happen when a loved one speaks insensitively or curtly. A few careless words can easily spark a flash of anger and a desire to verbally retaliate.

Written by Clare R. Johnson, PhD

Nightmares: What They Mean and How To Resolve Them

Achieving Harmony with The Seven Chakra Personality Types

Written by Shai Tubali

Achieving Harmony with The Seven Chakra Personality Types

Our individual differences and unique expressions all fall into seven major categories related to the seven chakras. Indeed, each category defines a world unto itself comprised of tendencies, attractions, and passions. A closer examination of this principle convinced me that each of us identifies with one major chakra and, to a lesser degree, with one or two other chakras.
